The Arts
With more than 500,000 works of art in one square mile of the city centre, it’s fair to say that culture is alive and well and living in Birmingham.

Our Museum and Art Gallery holds the world’s largest collection of pre-Raphaelite works of art. Just up the road is the Barber Institute, one of only five museums outside London to be recognised for its ‘outstanding significance’.

The beautiful Birmingham Hippodrome is home of the Birmingham Royal Ballet and one of the country’s busiest theatres welcoming over half a million people a year.
